. this assertion of the air defense identification zone extends over the territory well removed from the chinese mainland and in particular it covers islands that are held by anne claimed by japan. so there is a lot of aggressive territorial claims with how other countries respond to it. it will either be a success where they will back off. jenna: how are they doing so far? >> vice president biden was in japan before going on to china. while he said that the chinese declaration of this could lead to mistakes and was dangerous, he did not reject it explicitly, which you should have. the administration told the american civil air carriers to give china notification when their planes transit to avoid mistakes. japan and south korea have told their commercial carriers not to give notice. so anyway, we are acknowledging it. what we want is to resolve this peacefully, but i believe that china saw weakness on the part of the united states and i think we will see other productions of power as we have in the south china sea and elsewhere as china asserts authority and doesn't find the united states conte

defense which makes guns. it was rejected because the nfl's policy bans ads featuring firearms. the problem is in that ad, there are no guns except for one in the logo which the company offered to get rid of. still no go because this is really not about guns at all but the idea of guns. and how distasteful they are, not to you, but to people in the media, the ad execs, tv producers, all who wouldn't know a real gun if it poked them in the butt. why all the violence and the booze commercials trying to propagandize the sport just the idea of mentioning defense makes them jittery in their snotty intolerance. the enlightened media over you. why it's okay for bob costas to lecture you but a gun company can't buy time to talk protection. why does self-defense scare these nfl execs? well, someone becomes scared of an opposing idea when they know their own perspective is personal, not fact ral. statistics even from our own government dispute so many cliches about lawful gun ownership that it favors the gun owner. while the media can hate a certain right, what they really hate more is y
